Local churches make news for Christmas Day outreach

Volunteers from United Methodist churches throughout Florida fed the hungry, clothed the poor and supplied toys and gifts to those who otherwise would do without at Christmas.  

At least two of those congregations – Ridge Manor Community UMC in Hernando County and First UMC, Mount Dora – were recognized in media reports for taking time away from their personal celebrations on Christmas Day to spread cheer to others.
